Sport Facilities Fund

Mayor’s Sports Facilities Fund

We’re investing in new and existing sports facilities through the Mayor’s Sports Facilities Fund.

What has the programme funded?

So far the programme has seen:

  • over £8m invested across every London borough
  • 104 projects funded – either new facilities or refurbishment/upgrade of existing facilities
  • opportunities for more than 80,000 extra people to participate in sport each week .

Future funding

The Mayor has recently announced a £1.5 million capital investment in artificial grass pitches to boost grassroots sports across London.

The funding will kick-start the first phase of a ground-breaking programme in London and ensure the capital is at the forefront of The Football Association’s five-year plan to improve grassroots facilities in England and reduce reliance on local authority subsidies.
